Pythia Public Affairs is looking for an experienced communications expert to join our growing team as a full-time Associate


In the ever-changing arena of policy, politics and communications, Pythia Public Affairs is looking for a communications expert with two to three years of experience to join our growing team as a full-time Associate.


We’re policy wonks at heart. We work with clients and on issues we believe in that will improve our city, state and world.

Pythia is seeking a savvy and enthusiastic writer and researcher to join our nimble team. This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing firm and get firsthand experience working on some of the most compelling issues and campaigns in the New York political landscape, including housing, climate change, mental health, democracy, and more.

As an Associate, you will implement communications programs on behalf of a variety of accounts, executing strategy to move our campaigns forward. Our work spans earned, owned, social, and paid media — supported by a deep understanding of the policy and political landscapes.


  • Someone who enjoys writing and research. An Associate will spend a majority of their time researching various policy issues for clients, and use their findings to write both internal and external memos, opinion pieces, statements, talking points and other written materials as needed.
  • Someone who keeps up with the news. An Associate is expected to read breaking news and keep clients abreast of reporting that pertains to issues they care about.
  • Someone who thrives with multiple projects. At any time at Pythia, an Associate may have up to six clients. They will need to be able to turn their attention from one issue to another quickly, while balancing the needs of each client.
  • Someone who wants to grow. An Associate will work side-by-side with senior level team members at Pythia, joining both client calls and strategy sessions. 
  • Someone who works hard. We are a small team, which means we all wear different hats and support each other beyond our job titles. 
  • Someone with 2-3 years of experience working in government, communications (either in house or at a firm) or media.
